But as Leonardo DiCaprio rightfully reminded during his Oscar speech, climate change is real and everyone needs to take action. Well, you can take some actions today with your travel pack!
Here is a list of great and fun objects, that would fill all your needs while keeping the planet safe!
We often forget when traveling to developing countries, that most don’t have an efficient water management systems like Europe or other developed countries. In general, we should always try to use biodegradable and biological products because there are better for our skin and for the environment, whichever the country. But this is even more important in developing countries or when you go into the wild , wash in natural places whilst staying in a hotel or not. Not all hotels have filtration systems because there are quite expensive to carry out. So think about natural toothpaste, shampoos, shower gel, hair conditioner, sunscreens. They all need to go green.
A water flask or if you like high-techs, a filtered water bottle or a self-filling water bottle.
To reduce your unwanted purchase of water bottles in countries where tap water is not drinkable, take away your own bottle! From a simple flask or bottle to a high-tech bottle or a self-filling water bottle (filling with the water present in the air) the choice is vast but in all cases this will be of great help to cut your waste, especially in a country where waste management is treated poorly.
Eco-charger or solar charger
To reduce your use of electricity, you can think of taking an eco-charger (we all know that our chargers consume energy even if it is not charging anything). Solar chargers are simply great if you have little access to the catch but also it allows you to recharge at anytime and anywhere
